In this FREE workshop, Joy from Driftless Curiosity will offer a presentation featuring a few plants from her wellness routine, including yarrow, elderberry, echinacea, lavender, and lemon balm. We will cover plant benefits and uses, proper harvesting methods, best practices for storing and processing, and creating simple teas and tinctures. She will also share a number of herbal tea samples for taste testing. Many of the items Joy will be feature will be available for sale through the greenhouse.
Joy Miller co-founded Driftless Curiosity, a land-based learning nonprofit, with her husband Rufus in 2021. In 2018, she earned her Masters in Liberal Arts from Johns Hopkins University where she studied environmental ethics, leadership, and food justice. In her graduate research project, “Socially Responsible Food and Ethical Food Consumerism”, she learned the importance of consumers making meaningful connections with their food. Her research inspired her to open Keewaydin Farms as a social space and create unique programs where people can deepen their connection with the land, learn about producing food, seek better social solutions, express themselves artistically, and gratify their curiosity… and Driftless Curiosity was born. She’s an organic farmer, forager, naturalist educator, and life-long lover of all things curious.
